With contributions and comments from a range of distinguished Biblical scholars, this work unites psychoanalysis and the study of the Kabbalah. Ranging over both general psychoanalytical commentaries on the framework of mysticism and the "apocalyptical complex" and essays on specific incidents in the Bible and the Kabbalah, it opens doors into many fascinating avenues of enquiry. A glossary of the terms used make it accessible to those who have little or no knowledge of Jewish mysticism; they, along with more experienced students of the field, will find Ultimate Intimacy an engrossing and stimulating read.
